Strongman News


After the Botswana tourism falsely reported the dates a few months ago the location and dates were officially announced today by The Worlds Strongest Man.

It’s been 40 years since Bruce Wilhelm took the first World’s Strongest Man title in 1977, 40 years of blood, sweat and incredible feats. This year we will be celebrating this momentous event and for that we need a host city…

We are pleased to announce The World’s Strongest Man 2017 is back in the stunning Botswana!

This time our contestants get to visit Gaborone, the capital and one of Botswana’s largest cities. Taking place on 20th to 23rd May with Grand Final 27th & 28th May.

The 30 most powerful men in the world will gather to compete for just 10 places in the final with Brian Shaw and Žydrūnas Savickas battling it out to be the first to win their fifth 5 WSM title! Or will Hafþór Björnsson and Eddie Hall be able to rise up and take the title?
